There’s this Narrative, y’see. The Narrative is that “Donald Trump’s presidency is encouraging racist, alt-right, white nationalists to commit hate crimes against Muslims and people of color.”
So when a story comes along that fits The Narrative, it’s immediately published/broadcast. (“Too good to check.”) Like this one.
On Monday, news outlets across Wisconsin – and the nation – posted the story that “two Beloit students in residence halls were targets of hate crimes.”
Beloit College officials first reported that an anti-Semitic note was placed under a student’s door last Friday. Early Monday morning, an anti-Muslim threat was found spray-painted on another student’s residence hall door, and a swastika on a nearby wall.
Beloit security reportedly discovered the words, “Die,” “Sand nigger go home,” and #Muslimban in red paint on the student’s door on the second floor of the college’s Bushnell Hall.
And then it turns out to be fake. There’s a brief “correction” and then they go on to publicize the next fake hate crime that fits The Narrative.
“A Beloit College student admitted fabricating an incident in which a swastika, anti-Muslim and ethnic and racial slurs were spray-painted on a dorm room door and a nearby wall.”
The only violent hate crimes are happening on the left, e.g. Berkeley, CA
